Sun OpenSSO Enterprise Policy Agent 3.0 Guide for Apache HTTP Server 2.0.x

ProcedureTo Migrate a Version 2.2 Agent:

  1. Login to the server where the version 2.2 agent is installed.

    To migrate the agent, you must have write permission to the version 2.2 agent's deployment container files and directories.

  2. Stop the Apache HTTP Server instance for the version 2.2 agent.

  3. Create a directory to download and unzip the version 3.0 agent. For example: v30agent

  4. Download and unzip the version 3.0 agent that corresponds to the version 2.2 agent you are migrating.

    The version 3.0 agents are available from the OpenSSO project site:

  5. Change to the version 3.0 agent's /bin directory.

    For example, if you downloaded and unzipped the version 3.0 Apache HTTP Server 2.0.x agent in the v30agent directory:

    cd /v30agent/web_agents/apache_agent/bin

  6. Run the version 3.0 agentadmin program with the --migrate option. For example:

    ./agentadmin --migrate

  7. When the agentadmin program prompts you, enter the path to the version 2.2 agent's deployment directory. For example:


    In this example, /opt/v22 is the directory where you downloaded and unzipped the version 2.2 agent.

    The agentadmin program migrates the version 2.2 agent.

  8. Copy the Agent_nnn/config/ file to the /bin directory where ssoadm is installed on the OpenSSO Enterprise server.

  9. In, add the un-encrypted version 2.2 agent profile password at the end of the file, as follows:


  10. On OpenSSO Enterprise server, create a password file for the OpenSSO Enterprise administrator (amadmin).

    This password file is an ASCII text file with only one line specifying the amadmin password in plain text. For example: /tmp/amadminpw

  11. On OpenSSO Enterprise server, run ssoadm to create a new agent configuration in the OpenSSO Enterprise centralized agent configuration repository. For example:

    cd tools_zip_root/opensso/bin
    ./ssoadm create-agent -b Apache2.0.xv3Agent -t WebAgent -u amadmin 
    -f /tmp/amadminpw -D ./

    In this example:

    • tools_zip_root is the directory where you unzipped

    • Apache2.0.xv3Agent is the version 3.0 agent profile name.

    • WebAgent is the agent type for web agents.

    • /tmp/amadminpw is the path to the amadmin password file.

    Caution: After you run ssoadm, you might want to delete from the /bin directory. This file contains sensitive information, including as the agent profile password, and the original file is maintained on the server where the agent is installed.

  12. Restart the Apache HTTP Server instance for the migrated agent.

Next Steps

After you migrate the agent, you can manage the new 3.0 agent configuration using the OpenSSO Enterprise Administration Console or the ssoadm utility, as described in Managing the Apache HTTP Server 2.0.x Agent.
